Normani Gushes Over Touring Experience With Ariana Grande
Normani is loving getting to have some “girl time” with her friend Ariana Grande as she accompanies her on tour.
The former Fifth Harmony singer, 22, has been opening for Grande, 25, on her Sweetener tour and says she’s having the absolute time of her life.
Normani revealed that she has known Grande for a “very long time” but their careers have never given them the chance to just “be normal, and really enjoy each other.” Until now.
“We wear face masks, wake up really late, have breakfast, that kind of jam … just typical girls!” Normani told People Magazine. “I feel like she’s had an incredible year, especially going through as much as she has. The way that she’s handled things, not only as an artist but as a woman — I think she’s the definition of resilience.”
She added that with her dancers and backup singers, the ladies of the tour are basically always having a big party.
“There are so many women around me, I’m really inspired,” she said. “It’s like a sleepover on wheels.”
Normani has been riding a career-high with her duets with Sam Smith (“Dancing With a Stranger”) and Khalid (“Love Lies”) rocking the pop music charts.
“I think the thing that motivates me is knowing that I didn’t end up here just by coincidence,” she told the mag. “God placed me here strategically and put all of my desires within myself because he knew that I would be able to handle whatever it is that comes with it.”
